“The number of visitors is likely to rebound in the third quarter should we be able to implement the stimulus plan within the second quarter,” he said.

Reports showed that the country’s tourism industry has slumped after the grenade attacks at Silom, which killed one woman and left 80 injured.

Foreign arrivals at Suvarnabhumi Airport now average only 21,000 a day, a drop from 30,000. Arrivals on April 23 were down by 41% and visitors slipped by an average of 20% between April 24 and April 26.
